PORTLAND, OR (January 23, 2015) – PayRange, the world’s simplest payment solution for machines, launches its first Refer-A-Friend program. This promotion has been designed to drive additional sales to operators’ machines by encouraging users to share a free vend with their friends or co-workers via the PayRange App. There is no cost to the user and the operator is paid for the free vend.
Existing PayRange users may send referral codes via text message or email. The recipients of these codes will receive one free vend at a PayRange enabled machine once they download the PayRange mobile app, and register an account using the referral code. This new account comes pre-loaded with one free vend up to $2.00, allowing the new user to experience PayRange’s payment system without having to pay upfront. No credit card is required to try the app. This allows users to experience first-hand PayRange’s mobile payment system.
Once the new user funds their PayRange account, their referring friend will receive one free vend up to $2.00 as a thank you from PayRange for sharing the service. No limit is placed on the number of referrals an existing user may send.
This is one of many promotions available to operators that are possible with PayRange’s mobile payment system, designed to bring new users to existing machines as well as increase spending from existing users. PayRange is committed to supporting operators in improving their business through convenient payment options, and bringing new sales to their vending machines.
Current operators are automatically enrolled and don’t need to do anything additional to take advantage of this promotion.
PayRange was founded in 2013 by Paresh Patel in order to provide operators and consumers with the simplest, most accessible mobile payment solution possible. The company is distributing its BluKey™ device to operators in the US and Canada. Consumers can download the free mobile app from either the Apple App Store for iPhone users, or the Google Play Store for Android users. The PayRange app enables consumers to make transactions at unattended points of sale —vending machines, amusement devices, laundry and more — quicker and easier. With flexible funding options including all major credit and debit cards plus the ability to add funds via Apple Pay, consumers are empowered to make mobile payments a reality.
